Event details

Calling all entrepreneurs and small businesses – take your ingenious and innovative and ideas off the drawing board and into the marketplace!

  • Do you know how to identify and protect your creative intellectual property?
  • Would you like to increase your earnings by licensing or selling it to others?
  • Do you know what to do if someone uses your valuable ideas without permission?

Learn how to get the basics right with the Nottingham Creative Intellectual Property Project. Led by Nottingham Trent University, the project is designed for businesses and students in the creative industries. It aims to provide a better understanding of how to effectively identify, protect, manage and exploit ideas and intellectual property (IP).

Through a series of free, themed one-day workshops, industry experts, experienced lawyers, entrepreneurs and Nottinghamshire businesses share their knowledge and experience of the challenges, pitfalls and opportunities involved in working with intellectual property rights in the creative sector.

This first workshop focuses on the field of design, including product, textiles, fashion and graphics. The day will include expert advice on fashion and textiles from entrepreneur and academic, Susi Henson of Eternal Spirits and on graphics from Mark Shaw, President and CEO of Liquid Agency, a renowned brand strategy thinker and advice from Andy Cripps, Design Director of his Design Management consultancy Andy Cripps, and also a Design Associate for the Design Council.

Benefit from the onsite Pro Bono Law ClinicBusinesses and graduates with specific queries about their intellectual property will be offered the opportunity to benefit from free legal advice clinics, delivered by students of Nottingham Law School, guided by experienced IP lawyers and NTU staff.

This project is part funded by the UK Intellectual Property Office and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
